DU Admission First Day: High Cut-Offs, Overloaded Website Play Spoilsport

New Delhi:  High cut-offs in certain courses like BCom (Honours) and BA Economics (Honours), overloaded website and some colleges of Delhi mandating original class 12 mark sheets played spoilsport on the first day of Undergraduate admission yesterday. The University of Delhi started the admission to merit based courses yesterday with the colleges declaring the first cut-off on Friday. The highest cutoff was 99.66 per cent for BSc (Honours) Electronics in North campus's Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College. In humanities stream, Khalsa again set the highest cut-off at 99 per cent for BA (Honours) Political Science. While Miranda House's cut-off for BA (Honours) Economics is 97.25 per cent, BCom (Honours) cut-off in both Ramjas College and Hansraj College is 97.5 per cent.

The overloaded website of Delhi University was inaccessible for quite some time, reported Press Trust of India, forcing students to throng into their respective colleges of choice.

To get admission to DU colleges, the rules suggest that the applicants need to study the cut-off list first, then select courses and colleges on the university website, take print out of the admission slip and finally approach the respective colleges with the slip and required documents.

"The admission portal of the varsity was not accessible. Thus, students could not take out the print out, resulting in less number of students turning up for admission. However, it was still a normal crowd, considering the high cut-offs and the holiday on Sunday and Monday," a professor from Ramjas College told PTI.

Though authorities are expecting a good number of applications on Tuesday, which is the next day of admission after the Eid holiday.

Breaking away from tradition, off-campus colleges have announced higher cut-offs similar to those announced by North and South campus (on-campus) colleges, this year, reported PTI. Still, cut-offs for courses in Hindi and Sanskrit (Honours) hovered within an achievable 60-70 per cent for most colleges.

Meanwhile, aspirants from states like Kerala, Assam and Tamil Nadu were in knots when some colleges denied admitting them; reason: they are yet to receive their original class 12 mark sheets.
